GALAXY COMMUNICATIONS have entered into a new partnership with ONONDAGA COUNTY, NY that will enhance to the ONONDAGA COUNTY PARK’s Lights on the Lake program. During its six-week run, ONONDAGA COUNTY employees will still be responsible for daily operations at the park, but going forward, GALAXY COMMUNICATIONS will assume full responsibility for new initiatives, sponsorship and marketing activities.
"I am thrilled to begin this partnership with GALAXY COMMUNICATIONS," said County Exec. JOANIE MAHONEY. "Lights on the Lake has always been a fun community event, and I know with GALAXY’s involvement, it will be an even more successful program that community residents and visitors to ONONDAGA COUNTY can all enjoy."
"Since GALAXY already stages the Taste of SYRACUSE, being involved with Lights on the Lake is a natural step for us," said GALAXY Pres./CEO ED LEVINE. "The most obvious enhancement for this year will be the creation of First Night CNY at Lights on the Lake. This will be a family-friendly NEW YEAR’S EVE party that will feature an opportunity to walk through Lights on the Lake. The event will also feature live outdoor music all evening culminating with a concert performance from SEAN KINGSTON, plus the reunion of local legend, the TODD HOBIN Band. At 11:59, SU icon GERRY MCNAMARA will push the button that will activate the descent of an illuminated giant orange. At the stroke of midnight, an extravagant fireworks display over ONONDAGA LAKE will usher in 2011."
